I'm not really that bothered whether they bring back the GB team. I can see the arguments both ways. What will hurt the development of International RL in this country is the fact that we don't appear to be playing at home til 2016. Two consecutive tours down under, and seemingly no mid season games. Whether the team is England or GB, you won't maintain the interest of all those newcomers who turned out at Wembley and elsewhere last year by not playing any games for them to come and watch. The England 'brand' will never grow if we don't play any games in this country.
Agree totally with this. I am pretty cheesed off at no home internationals planned for end of season until 2016. What is worse that the RFL couldn't be a***d to set up some mid-season international football at home. I know we have key players out but would it have been that hard to set up a match with Scotland, Wales or France in July? Give it back to a successful WC venue like Bristol, Workington or Rochdale and sell tickets at keen prices to sell out.
Lazy, lazy lazy!
